  1. Dear Tim, no problem to fix any kind of these things. Please send a mail at contact@cinela.fr P.Chenevez
  2. I like the new member "Jiffy Sound". He looks great !
  3. Very nice quizz, very nice clues and very nice pictures ! Team work. Thank you for this story.
  4. Let me offer you a second CMC1, including full windshields, if you hear any difference in a blind test !
  5. Dear Cinela users, we really hope you are safe in this hard period ! For those who are in front of the virus during shootings, here is a simple advice for disinfection: Simplest way: leave your units in quarantine ! two or three days may be enough. Furs and fabrics: as heat is NOT acceptable (it can damage piles or synthetic fibers), a good solution is simply to wash it with a generous load of soap or washing powder in lukewarm water. The virus is known to "slide" in soapy water, then you hardly rinse the unit after washing ! Don't dry it with a hair dryer, e
  6. Answer in PM ! Please do not share...
  7. So that's the diagram Larry is talking about. Classical one, but a bit unsusual concerning values. OK about DC currents and voltages, but the (low) dynamic impedance could be a clue. Just saying. Forget me if I'm wrong...
  8. For this kind of question, please PM me next time. But no, we do not make pistol grips. You have marvelous ones made by other brands ! And thank ou for the website kick !
  9. Simple answer: The COSI-L-CMS50 is just the combination of the cage "L", the holder "22c" (special diameter for the CMS-50) and the long cable in XLR5. So, If you already have a COSI-L (For MiniCMIT, 4017C or else), you just need to order the holder (COSI-HLD-22c) and the cable (COSI-XLRMF5-L).
  10. For information, our poor website is dead since years, which is a great shame, but our reference list is full and alive. By principle, the COSI is totally made for single tube MS microphones (as the CMS-50 is) because the mic holder locks the S capsule in the right position. Please look at the COSI-NOTICE attached and you'll see the totally standard CMS-50 adaptation. A Pianissimo version is also a very simple adaptation. Philippe@Cinela Nota bene: please kick us to put the new website on line. It's totally ready...but no time to fill it properly (the qty of informations is huge)
  11. Thank you Larry, I'll contact Constantin to make him test a unit with a special filter (triple choke) inside the XLRF. Any experience and feedback regarding adaptations between microphones and Plug-On Txs is good to know for everyone. Philippe@Cinela
  12. Thank you Larry for these precisions. The well known inconvenient of a "low value DC resistance" technique is the decreasing of the dynamic impedance...down to 1k in this case. The C preamp has 100 ohms output impedance, but is claimed to support loads...down to 2k and not less (or is it 2k per phase ?...I don't know). Who knows what may be "affected" (max SPL, or else) but I suppose this is a minor inconvenient and may not be the pb of Constantin (and others ?). Larry, in order to make a loan to Constantin (suspension or windshield), just curious: 1. what is the exact slope a
  13. Larry, I have two questions: 1. what is the exact slope and fcy cutoff of the LowCut filter in the HM and HMa ? 2. Does the HM or HMa have a specific internal antenna or is it a "Pin1" version ? Constantin: you talk about a " lower freq noise ". Does it have something to do with handling rumbles, or is it a part of the electrical unexpected noise, even if you do NOT (at all) touch the microphone/boom ? If the issue has nothing to do with power supply, I would be pleased to make a loan to Constantin (specific suspension/windshield with RF filter in the XLRF).
  14. L=M+S R=M-S If you reverse the Fig.8, change the sign !
  15. Incredible story of that "time reference" channel and its mistake (500Hz instead of 250 Hz) that took two years to be understood ! I dream of having been Mr Scott’s assistant !
